“I don’t appeal to the masses and they don’t appeal to me” – Graham Parker, “Sharpening Axes”

Originally released on CD in 1996 on the independent Razor & Tie label, Graham Parker’s Acid Bubblegum finally makes its LP debut, pressed onto pink bubblegum vinyl.

Following several acoustic-based albums, Acid Bubblegum found pre-punk angry young man Parker roaring back into venomous form backed by an all-star band of Jimmy Destri (Blondie), Andrew Bodnar (The Rumour) and Gary Burke (Joe Jackson). The bracing lyrical attack of Acid Bubblegum is, if anything, only more relevant today.
